The Gathering Place
The Gathering Place
Founded in 1986, The Gathering Place is the only daytime drop-in center in metropolitan Denver that serves women, transgender individuals, and their children who are experiencing poverty, many of whom are also experiencing homelessness. While we refer to those we serve as “members,” no fees are ever charged for programs or services.
We believe deeply in the power of our community and continually work to make it stronger. Our key values include recognizing individual strengths, building respect and trust, and offering unconditional acceptance. We are not just a service organization; we are committed advocates for our members and promote social justice for every woman, child, and transgender individual in our community.
Why Donate to The Gathering Place?
The outbreak of COVID-19 has cast a harsh light on inequality in our society. Recommendations like self-quarantining, washing hands, and staying home from work and school are just not possible for everyone we serve. Despite the outbreak, TGP is committed to continuing to serve these vulnerable people during this public health emergency by providing access to hygiene, food, and other critical resources to support the health and safety of this vulnerable population.
However, we need to protect our staff and volunteers. TGP is taking careful precautions to protect the health and safety of staff, volunteers, and the people we serve, including increased routine cleaning and disinfection of our facility. Staff and volunteers who are sick are being required to remain away from TGP until they are symptom-free. As a result, we are remaining open for emergency services, but other programs will be scaled back during this time.
Finally, we also greatly need monetary donations (including crypto!) to ensure that we can continue providing these vital and life-saving services. We expect to see a greater need for food assistance as members experience loss of work/pay due to current economic conditions. We also expect to see more families seeking aid and support to make it through the extended school closures that have been announced in the area.
The health of the greater public is not defined by those with the most access, but by those with the least. Now more than ever, your Denver community needs your help. If you have the means, please donate cryptocurrency to
